Jurgen Klopp has no reservations about Liverpool's recruitment strategy and believes that he would not execute transfers solely to be a part of a "circus."
Ibrahima Konate, a center-back from RB Leipzig, was the Reds' lone major signing of the just-closed window. He cost a whopping £36 million.
It's a sum that championship rivals Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea - all of whom spent substantially in the market – utterly outspent.
Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Andy Robertson, and Alisson are among the players who have signed new contracts with Liverpool.
Klopp has no plans to change his approach to player acquisitions after leading Liverpool to Champions League and Premier League triumph during his time in command.
"I signed up to do things this way, and we've been fairly successful in that time," Klopp added.
"We've won a few trophies for doing things exactly [this way], but we're always asked why. It's the same every time.
"We believed it would be logical to enlist the help of our existing team, so we did so.
"That isn't as impressive as the rest of the circus, but I can't change it since you can't do transfer business just to be in a circus.
"Other teams signed players, that's OK; now we'll put them on the field and see what we can do."
Last month, City manager Pep Guardiola appeared to take issue with Klopp's comments about rival clubs' massive expenditure.
Klopp speculated that his words may not have been received in the way he intended.
"I certainly annoy some other managers," he continued, "and I don't want to annoy them."
"I say something, I believe it is correct, and it is probably correct in my thinking, but two days later I hear someone's remark and wonder, "Why is he on his toes?"
"To be honest, I don't give a damn what other clubs are up to."
Liverpool has seven points from three Premier League games and will visit Leeds United on Sunday.
